"We make Jorge Oteiza’s ideas on the regenerative power of aesthetic education and the desire for unity that Walter Gropius developed at the Bauhaus our own, and in our case we extend these to our teaching and film praxis".

Carlos Muguiro (director of Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola)

"To love a painting, you must be a potential painter, if not, you cannot love; and, in truth, to love a film, you must be a potential film maker; you must say: I would have done this or that; a person must make films themselves, even if only in the imagination, but it must be done, if not, they are not worthy of going to the cinema".

Jean Renoir

"We continue to perceive education as a technical plan for trades/occupations, in narrow areas of special knowledge or a particular way of earning a living materially. (...) But there is no calculation or protection for the fundamental teaching of a spiritual sensibility that we need to live together in our time".

Jorge Oteiza

"Art cannot be taught, art is discovered, it is experienced. Art it is transmitted in different ways to achieve a single understanding, sometimes with no dialogue whatsoever".

Alain Bergala

"Your film: let people feel the heart and soul there, but let it be made like handwork".

Robert Bresson
